In Memoriam

Kock, John H.


North of Lot B3 at the Iowa State Center

Plaque Text


John Kock was a quiet man who lived a long life. He laid down strong roots and his family grew. There were good years and bad, mistakes and surprises. All the while, he kept his faith and looked forward. Finally, after tremendous growth and success, he succumbed to the trappings of old age.

In his place now stands a new tree. It's roots will support a long life, with shade given to those who come to share a place John loved. We hope it flourishes like its namesake.

We love you Dad/John/Grandpa
